Ground heating for Torp Shopping Center

In connection with Torp Shopping Center's desire to winter-proof its entrance, our outside salesperson, Martin Larsson, was contacted by Bravida. They wanted to install ground heating to avoid snow, ice, and slipperiness for the customers during the winter.

Operational forecast for product selection

To winter-proof the approximately 100 square meter entrance area at Torp Shopping Center, Ebeco's Driftprognos came in handy. With the help of LCC calculations from the tool, it was easier to select which products were needed for the project.

This innovative tool allowed us to carefully analyze and thereby efficiently select the most suitable products. After an evaluation process, it was decided that our ground sensor and the associated equipment cabinet with the thermostat EB-Therm 800 were installed along with our series resistive heating cable Multiflex 27, designed specifically for snow melting on ground surfaces. Thanks to the ground sensor, the ground installation could optimize the system's efficiency and user-friendliness. The ground sensor made it possible to fine-tune the heating cable's effect based on current temperature and humidity conditions. Through this tailor-made solution, Ebeco was able to offer its customer a comprehensive and reliable winter-proofing solution.

This system not only guarantees a safe and welcoming entrance during the coldest months but also demonstrates Ebeco's commitment to delivering cost-effective and sustainable solutions for its customers' needs.

Ebeco operational forecast

Ebeco Driftprognos is a simulation program to provide a basis for LCC calculations in projects where Ebeco's roof and ground heating installations are designed. The service is developed for use by users, prescribers, and contractors.

The service retrieves information about temperature and precipitation from SMHI's open service for historical weather data. Other operational parameters are based on Ebeco's accumulated experience formulated in a number of assumptions relevant to the context.

The service is free of charge and can be used in projects to achieve as suitable a solution as possible. Contact our inside sales team before your next project, and they will help you to develop a basis tailored to your wishes.
